Someone is Having a Birthday Today

Time goes by in the twinkling of an eye.

My sweet granddaughter is three years old today!

Happy Birthday, Makiya Rose!

Grandma loves you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!

I’m over at One Woman’s Day today remembering that magical day when she was born.

My daughter has a special post on her blog, Seasons of Life, today too.



I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard that “bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck” phrase. Some music is going on in my mind, too… and she is indeed adorable!

    1. Nice to hear that you know that little song, DJan!

  2. Sweetest picture! My cuties are growing up fast, too!
